iPhone 7 Review

iPhone 7 Review

It's ironic, a new iPhone is usually the specter hanging over rival smartphones, but it's the promise of their unannounced successor that looms above the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Mauled even before launch by vocal criticism of Apple's decision to abandon the decades-old headphone jack, and stung by accusations that these new handsets play it safe rather than push the envelope, could 2016's iPhone really be a disappointment?

Pokemon GO Plus Review : Great for one thing

Pokemon GO Plus Review : Great for one thing

Today the Pokemon GO Plus has arrived in physical GameStop stores and online through Amazon and, again, Gamestop. Our review here is going to be brief - in part because we've only been working with the device for a very short time. Because the device is so extremely simple, only a short amount of time was necessary, really - we're already confident that we know whether or not the Pokemon Trainers of the world should partake in this $35 piece of hardware right out the gate.

2017 Audi Q7 3.0T quattro Review: Seven seat excess

2017 Audi Q7 3.0T quattro Review: Seven seat excess

If there's something clearly pathological about my attraction to vast, luxury SUVs despite having neither the family nor the lifestyle to demand them, I can probably take solace in the fact that a large chunk of America feels the same way. Audi's 2017 Q7 will do nothing to dissuade either them or I, redesigned from the ground up from its strong-selling predecessor and making a pitch as the most technologically advanced SUV this side of a considerably more expensive Tesla Model X.

Moto G4 Play Review : Another Entry-Level Hit

Moto G4 Play Review : Another Entry-Level Hit

The latest in Lenovo's Moto G collection of devices is the "Play" of the G4 (2016) generation. This means the Moto G4 Play is the least of the pack, least impressive and least costly, too. Today we're going to judge whether this device is worth the cash it costs - and for whom this device would be ideal. This device looks and feels extremely similar to its closest relatives, the Moto G4 and the Moto G4 Plus.

2017 Cadillac XT5 Review – This is no mini Escalade

2017 Cadillac XT5 Review – This is no mini Escalade

As a Brit who harbors a dark, some might say unnatural love for Cadillac's Escalade, I'm used to wearing my perversions on my sleeve, but I may be immune to the charms of the 2017 Cadillac XT5. Though sharp styling and clever all-wheel drive are welcome, as is an impressively high quality cabin that in most respects punches above its weight, there's the all-important question of that magic spark that true love requires.

LEGO Bucket Wheel Excavator Review : Biggest. Technic Set. Ever.

LEGO Bucket Wheel Excavator Review : Biggest. Technic Set. Ever.

We've got the biggest LEGO Technic set in the world here this week and we're about to get in deep with how much we dig it. This is the LEGO Bucket Wheel Excavator, a "Technic" brand set that utilizes mainly Technic pieces, but a small set of standard LEGO bricks as well. This set is more than just a Technic set - it's not just a model. It's not the sort of thing an adult builds and lets sit on a shelf, as some LEGO Technic sets are prone to do. Instead, this set, be it on purpose or by complete coincidence, works with LEGO Minifigures.

Michael Kors Smartwatch Review : Access Dylan and Bradshaw

Michael Kors Smartwatch Review : Access Dylan and Bradshaw

The Michael Kors Access line features to main smartwatch products: Dylan and Bradshaw. Both are available in more than one color and with a variety of straps. The Dylan is the lesser of the two, coming in two "silocone" iterations, one black (the one we have here), and one closer to a true rose gold. The Bradshaw comes in Gold, Rose Gold, and Sable - all of which are "tones" of stainless steel, not actual gold. Michael Kors brand suggests that these watches are what the user should consider "the chicest way to do tech."

Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Review: All suck, no topple

Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Review: All suck, no topple

Sucking more, stumbling less: that may not be quite how Dyson bills the new Cinetic Big Ball Animal, but that's the basic promise from the new canister vacuum. Borrowing from the same physics that keeps Weebles from falling over, the distinctive cleaner justifies its hefty price tag with less frustration around the house and more dirt in the bin.

2016 Toyota Corolla S Review: The “S” is for sorta-sporty

2016 Toyota Corolla S Review: The “S” is for sorta-sporty

Never mind brand loyalty, how about name loyalty? The 2016 Toyota Corolla is the eleventh generation of the car, larger than ever before and - in this "Special Edition" Corolla S form, at least - faintly striking on the road, courtesy of Absolutely Red paint and 17-inch gloss black alloys. It's a car that promises not only the predictability that Corolla addicts expect, but some sort of driving enthusiasm too, though in the face of tough competition only half of all that is true.

Logitech Pop Review: A smarter button for the IoT

Logitech Pop Review: A smarter button for the IoT

It's an awkward fact of life: the smart home, and the Internet of Things in general, is meant to make life more streamlined but can often just leave us poking at our phones more frequently. Want to turn the lights on? There's an app for that. Want to play your favorite new album? There's an app for that too. Sometimes you yearn for the halcyon days of a switch, and that's just what Logitech is offering with Pop, a programable shortcut button.

This desk changed my life

This desk changed my life

The following is an Ergotron WorkFit-D Sit-Stand Desk Review - with a couple of Ergotron add-ons. Earlier this year it was apparent that my working situation was not going to be able to work any longer. I had neck pain as well as upper and lower back pain from the less-than-optimal working conditions I was providing for myself. I decided to seek out the folks at Ergotron to take some of their products out for a spin. I told them my situation and we decided that it'd make sense for me to test out several items: the WorkFit-D Sit-Stand Desk, Neo-Flex Underdesk Keyboard Arm, and the LX Dual Side-by-Side Arm for monitors.

2017 Mercedes-AMG SLC 43 Review: More modern, less muscle

2017 Mercedes-AMG SLC 43 Review: More modern, less muscle

If you're in the luxury game, the pressure to build high performance editions of almost every model in your line-up is a strong one. Most premium brands pursue volume as aggressively as possible, extending their reach into every conceivable niche to create a balance of both divine (Audi RS7) and strange (BMW X6 M) bedfellows. After replacing its longtime SLK nameplate with the new SLC roadster, Mercedes-Benz turns its hot rodding skills to the 2017 Mercedes-AMG SLC 43 and continues its tradition of dumping a big engine in a small car - with a few important twists.
